memory cgroup enhancements: add- pre_destroy() handler
Add a handler "pre_destroy" to cgroup_subsys. It is called before cgroup_rmdir() checks all subsys's refcnt. I think this is useful for subsys which have some extra refs even if there are no tasks in cgroup. By adding pre_destroy(), the kernel keeps the rule "destroy() against subsystem is called only when refcnt=0." and allows css ref to be used by other objects than tasks.
